FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW12 The Men Who Stare at Goats Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW12. It’s game-weeks such as GW11 that puts a smile on your face and makes FPL seem like an enjoyable pastime. 90pts gave us our highest game-week rank (98,245th) of the season as well as our biggest green arrow of the season and our highest OR of the season. We now sit 45,819th. There were solid performances from each area of our squad but it was the defence who stole the show. The one and only, John Lundstram, stole the show with 21pts. Caglar Soyuncu returned an impressive 14 pts while Lucas Digne chipped in with 6pts. In midfield there were returns from John McGinn and Sadio Mane who vindicated our decision to sell Mo Salah. Up top there were returns for Abraham, Jimenez and Ag...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW11

FF247 FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW11 An Englishman, an Irishman and Nostradamus walk into Cash Converters… Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW11. Where do we begin? As you may remember from last week’s article, we toyed with the idea of selling Kun & Mount for Vardy & KdB. If some of the committee members hadn’t (literally) fallen asleep during the meeting we may have made those very transfers, but we’ll never know now. Let’s forget about what could have been and concentrate on what did happen. We registered a paltry 51pts which in itself wasn’t horrendous and was actually 2pts above the average but it wasn’t enough to prevent a 4th red arrow in a row. Anymore and we’ll have enough for our very own aerobatic team. We now sit at 181,371st. We at least got our...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW10

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW10 Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW10. “Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road…” There are great weeks, good weeks, average weeks and horrendous weeks. GW9 was definitely the latter for us as we scored just 30pts, 7pts below the average and a GW rank of 5.5mln. D’oh! We know we weren’t alone, after all misery loves company. Looking for highlights is understandably easy enough as they were few and far between. Digne was our highest scorer with 6 followed close behind by Sterling with 5. Captain Abraham did nowt, but he wasn’t alone. We did suffer of course by the absences of Salah and Aguero with Cantwell and Pieters coming off the bench for an accumulated 4pts. Lundstram was frustratingly left stranded third on our...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW8

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW8 Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW8 Don’t panic… When McGinn is your joint top scorer on 8 points and he isn’t even your captain you could be forgiven for panicking. But, alas, it’s all relative, and most people were in the same boat this week. Our new signigns Mings and Abraham proved to be unispired choices as they combined for a grand total of 3 points. Elsewhere we had Sterling on 7, Mount, Pieters and Soyuncu all with 6, Salah on 3, Pukki on 2 and Pope on 1. Our captain (Aguero) didn’t even start the game, although he did come on and notch a belated assist. All that left us on 50 points, 1 below the average, and an inevitable red arrow, our first of the season. It knocked us back about 20k in the ranks and ...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW7

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW7 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW7. Spawning Glory A Zinchenko no-show was always on the cards at some point, a Sterling one less so, albeit less excepted. One was plenty enough, but the latter was less welcome, especially considering how many points he may have scored in the annual Watford roasting. Lundstram was our main beneficiary in the above deal as he glefully leapt from the bench, 12 points in hand. Ordinarily we would be more than happy for Mount to climb likewise but this time he simply filled in a two point hole. Elsewhere our Burnley duo of Pope and Pieters did what they do when at home and combined for 13 between them, McGinn surprised us with a 10 pointer away at Arsenal and Kun somehow disappointed us with an 18 pointer a...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW6

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW6 Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW6 What a waster…. If we were to tell you that our team last week consisted of the following points then we would forgive you for both wondering exactly how far we had fallen and probably ducking in the process; 0, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3 & 3. Yep, that’s seven of them at three or less. If we told you we still beat the average and managed a jump in ranks you’d probably have to wonder how good our final four were. And the truth be told they were ok but even then not exactly world beaters. They got 6 (Kun), 9 (Mount), 12 (Pukki) and 18 (Salah as Capo). Or in other words 78% of our points. We ended up with 58 in total, 6 above the average and it helped us to another small rise in the ranks, this tim...[Read More]

FPL Devil’s Advocate

FPL Devil’s Advocate Welcome to the second edition of Devil’s Advocate. I have asked popular site member/writer Smash to battle it out with me again. I asked him to pretend he had played his wildcard this week and to present that as his team going forward. So he went about building it and after I got a look at it, I tried to pick it apart a little. A lot…. Here is our discussion about his imaginary wildcard team. Team Smash Keepers Mito: I get it, Pope feels like the right buy and his fixtures are fixing to get considerably easier after a tough start. The man is second in saves so far, as many of us expected and top 5 in FPL points for keepers despite having faced Arsenal, Liverpool and Wolves in 3 of their first four. So I won’t sit here and argue with you and look a foo...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW4

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW4 Form over faculties? Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW4. GW3 was tough. Really tough. We brought in a couple of Ole’s babies and one eeked out an assist, the other sh*t the bed, to be frank. Martial got us 5 points for his troubles, Wan-B got us zero after a yellow card and a late goal conceded. Not every transfer decision can be perfect and Palace at home screamed clean sheet. In theory… Wan-B’s defensive compatriots didn’t fare much better as they amassed 7 points between the sorry lot of them. Our ‘left-field GW1’ pick McGinn got us an assist to keep things ticking along in the midfield budget basement. Our premium mids did what they do with Salah and Sterling (C) bringing home 31 between them. Up top ...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW3

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW3 The ‘W’ word… Welcombe to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW3. After a rather impressive 95pts in GW1 we were brought back down to earth in GW2 with a somewhat mediocre 52pts. We won’t complain though as it was 11pts above the average and resulted in a green arrow, lifting us to circa 83k. Two of our defenders accounted for close to 50% of our points. Lucas Digne returned an assist, a clean sheet and two bonus points. Digne’s points were of no surprise to us. However, John Lundstram picking up a goal, a clean sheet and three bonus points led to one of the management committee hollering for doughnuts! Aside from a goal from Raheem Sterling the rest of our team did SFA. We move onto GW3 with 2FT’s burning a hole in our pocket. Obviously...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW2

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW2 Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW2. What a nice start to the season with seven out of our eleven starters providing returns. We ended on 95 points which landed us about 130k in the overall standings. It is good to see all the hard work of coming up with a team payoff. Pay no attention to the fact that we got ridiculed for our team when we first put it out, just know that we corrected it and that the person responsible for picking Ceballos was punished, one less doughnut for him at the next committee meeting. At the keeper position we got a cool 8 points from Pope, one little detail that many may have missed, he had a key pass in the fixture vs Saints. Why buy Ederson when you can have Pope in your side passing for possible assists. We went ...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW1

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW1 Whether you’ve been waiting with baited breath for our return, or you’ve simply stumbled across this by accident, let us give you a brief history of what we’ve done before, who we actually are, what we do and what to expect from this series of articles. ‘If you know your history…’ For anyone who missed our final wrap up article which we published after the 2018/19 season concluded we ended up with a record points score for us of 2,406 and also a highest ever rank of 5,757. Our history of ranks after 5 seasons now looks like this; 2014/15: 5,921 2015/16: 84,609 2016/17: 12,152 2017/18: 123,007 2018/19: 5,757 Nothing magnificent but also nothing too shoddy. 2017/18 aside perhaps, not quite sure what went so drastically ...[Read More]

FPL Devil’s Advocate

FPL Devil’s Advocate Welcome to the first edition of Devil’s Advocate. I have asked popular site member/writer and overall good guy Smash if he would be willing to put his team up for me to try and poke holes in it. Naturally, he agreed, because being helpful on the site or in the background is who he is. A little about Smash fpl wise. Last season he finished 15K, he has been playing since the 06/07 season and has had 2 finishes inside 2K on top of a whole host of other good rankings. Hopefully in this article his team will also address some of the concerns that you may have and I think that what will you find is that it is ok to be unsure. Being ready to adjust as the pre-season continues and paying close attention to little details are the makings of a strong fpl manager and ...[Read More]
